The Orphan's Gifts (2017)

Video  29'30''



The Orphan’s Gifts (2017) confronts the structure of French language with the discovery of the modern tower of Jerusalem: Migdal Ha-ïr.  

The traumatic journey of a child during the Algerian War will make both entities transcend to a sacred level, through body movements, words, and introspective testimonies.
